“Marking her American debut, Krieps, whose talent had caught Anderson’s discerning eye in The Chambermaid Lynn, ignites the screen with an unforgettable breakthrough performance. Against the backdrop of 1950s London, the film centers on Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), a celebrated couturier whose meticulously crafted existence is upended by the arrival of the spirited Alma—a young waitress who morphs into both muse and lover. Within the beguiling and almost mystical realm of the fashion craft, the film reveals itself as a nuanced exploration of a toxic familial triangle, an enthralling clash of wills involving Reynolds Woodcock, Alma, and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville), which leaves Alma caught between Woodcock’s desires, his domineering disposition, and her own nebulous aspirations and dreams.”—Series curator Adeline Monzier “Definitely the wildest trip I have ever been on. It’s mysterious and raw, perfect and present—but also dark and disastrous. About the inscrutable ways of love—it’s power and perversion. This movie welcomed me like an old friend, and initiated me to the magic of movies. It can never be undone.”—Vicky Krieps
